Whoops. Just noticed they've screwed up in painting that Tank. Yellow Tac signs are 52 code. 53 code is Blue. Don't you just hate it when you spot something like that, and show your more of a spotter than some blokes who work at a tank museum...
Aah...but I didn't work at a tank museum

Did anyone see the Tank Overhaul episode where the Isle of Wight Museum overhauls one of these guys? Fascinating.
